Operational maintenance activities and the vital role of Incident Response on our motorway & state highway network expose our staff to various safety risks. The high speed network also means that it has become increasingly important for our staff to be aware of the risk exposure and to be able to assess the risk and have the necessary knowledge and skills to manage them.
In collaboration with the AA we developed the Defensive Driving Plus Course for Fleet and Business (ADDD+). Courses are catered for the different AMA teams driving a variety of vehicle fleets (Utes, Light Trucks, TMA fitted Trucks). This course recognises some of the unique risks of operations in an environment with challenges such as differential braking, spatial awareness, emergency slalom swerving and braking, and vehicle and pedestrian avoidance techniques.
Estimated results and savings
Development of knowledge, awareness and skills to manage associated safety risks of operating in challenging environments. Increased competency of drivers significantly reduce the associated health and safety risk. Reduced risk of vehicle and plant damage.
